Shane Higgins

Head of Boarding and Designated Safeguarding Lead


As Head of Boarding and Designated Safeguarding Lead, it is my responsibility to ensure the welfare and well-being of all KPS students is our number-one priority, and will continue to remain so.

I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2012 with a BA in French and Russian (distinction in French) and my passion for languages led me to return and complete a PGCE in Modern Foreign Languages. Following this, I spent three years in Lincoln as Head of Lower School Languages and a resident houseparent alongside my wife in Robert de Cheney Boarding House. I joined KPS following almost two years at Winchester College. I taught French and Russian GCSE, iGCSE and Pre-U respectively. I was also Assistant Housemaster during my time there.

A keen sportsman and a football fanatic, I love to coach in my spare time. My favourite activity is spending time travelling with my wife Fanny and our cat Roudoudou, learning about new cultures and bringing home fresh, intriguing ideas...and cuisine!
